Since our readers are brilliant, well read, and enlightened, then all of you already know that December 23 is Festivus – A Holiday for the Rest of Us!  Since Festivus is upon us, we will take a day or two off to celebrate Festivus, while you celebrate the holidays of your own choosing. 

You already know that some of the major events of Festivus are an aluminum pole that is generally used in lieu of a Christmas tree or other holiday decoration, shedding holiday materialism. Those attending participate in the “Airing of Grievances” in which each person tells each and everyone else all the ways they’ve disappointed him/her over the past year.  During the Airing of Grievances, we will discuss the 7th Circuit’s decision in Brill, the 9th Circuit’s decision in Abrego, and the 11th Circuit’s decision in Evans.  Afterwards, we will come together for a Festivus dinner, after which, the “Feats of Strength” are performed. Traditionally, Festivus is not over until the head of the household is wrestled to the floor and pinned.  We will be back up and running bringing you all the CAFA commentary you crave, just as soon as we pin some of the Editors of our blog to the floor.

From the Editors of the CAFA Law Blog, we hope that you have a safe and happy Festivus and experience a true Festivus Miracle.
